XLIX. The Haikubes


In a recent package from a dear friend, I acquired a new fun way to make haikus. So occasionally I will post pictures of my new haikus instead of writing ones from my thoughts.

The rules of these Haikus are as follows:
1. Roll the haikubes
2. The two colored cubes set the direction and theme for the haiku
3. Use the rest of the Haikubes to write the poem.

Here we go!

Through joys and sorrow:
Roller coaster of friendship,
Sometimes, just might end.

XLVII.

Lips tremble, eyes fog,
Gasping for air, throat closes;
Truth spoken: tears fall.

XLVI.

Point of no return.
Crossing the line; leap of faith.
No looking back now.

Affecting the core

Lost treasure on sunken ships;

Standard words to start a tale;

An Explanation of Sorts, Part II.

Nearly a year ago I decided to write haikus. My reason?, I couldn't tell you for the life of me. I think I wanted to push myself, to expand my borders, do something I don't do. It ended after the 22nd post due to my usual act of finding something else to do and getting side tracked.

So here I am, July, 3 weeks from leaving Oregon and going to Western Illinois University to get my Masters in Experimental Psychology, attempting to resume what I started.

My reason for this sudden re-interest? Well to be honest I've been inspired by a writer. After reading some her work and getting to know her, I realized that this is an output that I may benefit from.

I cannot promise to write one per day, or one per week, all I can say is that I can try to write these haikus when I get around to it, when it becomes relevant in my life. The first few weeks I'm sure will be a lot, and then will caper off as I am want to do.

So here we go, Haikus part 2

New day: exception,
A day to celebrate love;
Tomorrow: wonted.

Emotional wounds.
My sympathy for Atlas:
World's weight on shoulders.
